In  our environment we have the Transport settings as shown in the screen shot below.

My concern is about the "Specify the external postmaster address" is left blank.

This is the link that actually explains it:

It is funny when people just Google links and post them... anyway...

The external postmaster allows you to see an external address that is not part of your domain that the NDR messages will appear to come from when a message fails. For example: if someone outside of your domain sends a message to a user account that doesn't not exist they would receive a non-delivery report that will come from the sender that you specify.

<<they would receive a non-delivery report that will come from the sender that you specify.
>>

would the address of the Sender you specify, be fictitious, or real ?

Technodweeb:

in that link you posted…there is a user sending a mail from Gmail to non existing user in the company, and they received NDR from Gmail.
OK, so even if Exchange 2010 did not have that option : "Specify the external postmaster address"

Gmail user will still receive NDR..
